I really like you project - and the mini-nuke!
What is the purpose of retaining the center prop engine?- it is flanked by two larger engines which seem more than enough to propel the aircraft. That location would be excellent for some sort of BFG- a lightning beam cannon which could be built forward of your existing radial piston engine as greebly...
I'm keeping it cuz it way easier than replacing it with something else.. And cuz it's got a third source of propulsion.. So it kinda the air intake for it..
I've been sort of stalled on this build though. I am redesigning said third propulsion device.. The rocket engine in the aft of the fuselage.
Just trying to work out some major details, and I'm not sure how to go about it at the moment. Also changed jobs and that is making it difficult to devote time.
Also started a second model project - a WWII Colonial Viper from a spitfire of which should be easier to kit bash.. There's some donor parts from P-38 lightning as well..
Should I start a second thread for that one?
